Philippians 2:16 - holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Do you know one of the hardest things in the life of a minister--in the life of a preacher? One of the hardest things in the life of a preacher is when those whom he teaches turn their back on Christ. We read in Philippians chapter two verse sixteen: Holding fast the word of life so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. Paul was concerned that they be faithful to God so that his labors weren't wasted. It's hard to teach people and then have them turn their back on God. But preachers, don't ever think that gives you a reason to give up, keep teaching and find those who will be faithful to the word of life.
